Rose Apple

October 15th, 2012 · 11 Comments · Tropical

So the other day I’m at the new San Diego Public Market and I see a few fruits I’ve never even heard of before with clearly marked signs: “Jelly Date” and “Rose Apple”. Cool! So the farmer offers me a taste of a jelly date and it has a faintly tropical flavor. “Ohh – is [...]

Medjool Date with Pistachios & Coconut

January 17th, 2012 · 2 Comments · Date

This weekend I went to a Golden Globes viewing party, with a potluck theme of “healthy but tasty”. I can only presume this theme was so that we could feel good about ourselves as we indulged in watching (and judging) some of the most beautiful human beings alive walk down that red carpet. As I [...]

Opal Apple

January 12th, 2012 · 7 Comments · Apple

What a surprise! This apple seems pretty late in the season to show up at my grocery store so I was delighted to see it just sitting there near the end cap. I know of course, that ALL apples just sit there. But for whatever reason when it is a fruit I’ve never seen (or [...]

Aurora Apple

December 22nd, 2011 · 4 Comments · Apple

Despite having tasted over 45 different varieties of apples, I still find new ones just sitting there at the grocery store tucked between the Granny Smiths and Galas. I have to say that I am insanely lucky to live in Southern California. We just have so much access to so much! I’ve never really talked [...]

Warren Pear

December 14th, 2011 · No Comments · Pear

I keep hearing about the Warren Pear! The WARREN PEAR! Oprah likes it. Martha likes it. The LA Times likes it. It was starting to feel ridiculous how much I was seeing this new-to-me variety pop up everywhere, which of course made my cynical side come out in full force. Why would Oprah and Martha [...]

Ambrosia Apple

December 2nd, 2011 · 6 Comments · Apple

If you’ve been wondering what kind of apple lured Snow White, then this is the fruit for you! Aptly named, the Ambrosia apple, means fruit of the gods. And while I like to imagine that the gods are a little more imaginative than a straightforward apple (see the tiger striped lemon, caviar limes, pink fleshed [...]

You would think that people would give me fruit to try all the time since I’m the Fruit Maven and all, but alas you would be wrong. Actually I am rarely on the receiving end of exciting fruit, which is ok I suppose since my close friends aren’t exactly as obsessed with finding the next [...]

Comice Pear

November 19th, 2011 · No Comments · Pear

The Comice Pear is know for being the Christmas pear and being an absolute favorite among the well fed masses. This is the same variety of pear that Harry & David rebranded as the Royal Riviera Pear and sells for exorbitant amounts throughout the holidays. Which gives me an idea…maybe I should start taking cheap [...]
